Happy end of Tuesday



Boring Monday was followed by boring Tuesday, as there is only one market moving event today, and it’s going to be released during American session. According to the median forecasts the Non-Manufacturing ISM improved to 56.3 in July from 56.0 in June and, thus, recovered from temporary weak spot. Economists are optimistic about the outcome as the latest service sector surveys have brightened and brought hope for higher business activity in service segment – one of the most important in the American economy. If everything ends up happily, we may see the pair moving to 102.74 resistance.
